Award-winning mobile design and development team to create consumer-facing application for groundbreaking development project
DURHAM, NC and NEW YORK—November 25, 2014—Leading mobile app design and development agency Two Toasters today announced they have been chosen by Google’s Advanced Technologies and Products group (ATAP) to build the Android app for the Project Ara module marketplace. The Ara Module Marketplace (analogous to Google Play but for Ara hardware modules) will act as a consumer’s primary tool for learning about, exploring, configuring, purchasing, and managing Ara devices and modules.
“We’re excited to be working on Project Ara and be a part of a fundamental re-imagining of smartphones,” said Rachit Shukla, CEO at Two Toasters, “To be selected because of our expertise in designing mobile user experiences is a great honor, and we look forward to the unique collaborations that arise from this effort.”
